The start-ds command starts an installed server instance.
The start-ds command is used to start the server and to provide general server information.
You can run start-ds without any options, which starts the server as a background process. In this case, the script will not exit until the server has either started successfully or has encountered an error that prevents it from starting.
On UNIX systems, the server will not start if it cannot log the process ID at install-dir/logs/server.pid. Ensure that the file is writable by the user account that the server uses.
The start-ds command accepts an option in either its short form (for example, -N) or its long form equivalent (for example, --nodetach).
Attempt to start using the configuration that was in place at the last successful startup (if it is available) rather than using the current active configuration.
Start the server as a foreground process that does not detach from the terminal. When the server is running in this mode, it can be stopped by using the stop-ds command from another window, or by pressing Control+C in the terminal window in which the server is running.
Display general information about the system on which the server is installed, including the instance and installation paths, and then exit rather than attempting to start the server.
Wait no longer than the maximum time (in seconds) before the command returns. (The server continues the startup process, regardless). A value of 0 indicates an infinite timeout, which means that the command returns only when the server startup is completed. The default value is 60 seconds. This option cannot be used with the -N, --nodetach option.
Run in quiet mode. No output is generated unless a significant error occurs during the process.
Display command-line usage information for the command and exit without making any attempt to stop or restart the server.
Display the version information for the server and exit rather than attempting to run this command.
The following examples show how to use the server commands.
Example 1-40 Starting the Server
The following command starts the server:
Example 1-41 Starting the Server as a Foreground Process
The following command starts the server as a foreground process. You can stop the server by running the stop-ds command from another window or by pressing Control+C in the terminal window in which the server is running.
